MAGNIFICO took full advantage of his perfect draw to win the Greyhounds WA Chase Final over the 405m at TABtouch Park tonight.
Explosive beginners Unending and Astrophysic hit the lead in the back straight before colliding and opening the door for Magnifico to burst through on the fence.
The Daryl Nielson-trained chaser took full advantage and sped away from a game Astrophysic to win in a time of 22.60.
Ruble Monelli and You Say Goodbye finished third and fourth respectively and both put in good runs and can be followed to their next start.
Magnifico’s win was his 14th win of his career and the $7000 winners cheque takes the star’s prize money to more than $30,000.
For Astrophysic, it was the 37th time he has placed at the track and distance in 39 attempts.

Greyhounds to follow:
ABOUT TO ROCK (R1 N2) made it a hat-tricks of wins in the grade five over 405m tonight at TABtouch Park. After two blistering runs at Northam, the Phil Gough-trained chaser had to grit his teeth and knuckle down after a slow start. About To Rock run down Florin Monelli and held off the fast finishing Theo Gundi and chalked up won number 7 from start number 11. He has a bright future.
